An ENFP here, I have an ISFJ mom and I'm curious- what do other ISFJs act like in a relationship with an ENFP? By relationship I mean romantic, queerplatonic, familial, or just a friendship. I find that we can get along over some things and I love her quite a bit (I mean, she's my mom), but she's less interested in keeping up with things that are always changing, like technology or pop culture (that may just be a mom thing, though). My dad is also an ENFP and while the two of us are super interested in technology and programming and computers, my mom is always the one asking for help sending an emoji or changing her ringtone and my ISTJ brother was just never as interested in learning about programming. Is this an Si thing? An ISxJ thing?
Also, what do y'all think of ENFPs? And what do my fellow ENFPs think of ISFJs, if any of them are reading?
I personally think that ISFJs are very caring and aware of how to navigate social situations with ease (I find they tend to be on the extroverted end of introversion, much like ENFPs are on the introverted end of extroversion), but not as strong when it comes to practical matters or needing to logically reason something out. They share with ENFPs having an auxiliary Thinking function, but theirs is Ti rather than Te which I think may result in even mature ISFJs with a developed tert not being nearly as productive as mature ENFPs. In careers, I find that their Si-Fe means they often pick a career that involves helping people (though not necessarily in the most stereotypical way- my mom's a lawyer, but she works in VA helping veterans) and one they've desired since childhood. While ENFPs will dance around career paths with their Ne-Fi drive to find something new and pursue their own values, ISFJs will pick a career where they feel like they're helping and stick to it, come thick or thin.
